republican, speaker john boehner. >>> and he's the activist who dressed up like a pimp to exsuppose acorn corruption. >> when i said i'll turn tricks, i was expecting them to like, whoa! they just heard it and it was business as usual. >> now james o'keefe is paying $100,000 to a victim of his stunt. today, ex-acorn employee juan carlos vera joins me for an exclusive. >>> thanks for watching. i remember when president obama got elected and they did the stimulus package and the republicans just couldn't wait to say, oh, this is obama's economy. you know, we show you this chart every month. the united states economy has experienced three straight years, that would be 36 months, of private sector job growth. more than 6 million jobs have been added after the worst crisis since the great depression. the trend did not reverse this month. why is that significant? in this -- and this is what has me fired up tonight because we couldn't erase a right wing bulletpoint. unemployment has been tick down. 7.7%. a four-year low, by the way. the country added 236,000 private sector jobs. experts were exp

'm curious though about this revenue issue because in some ways, one of the things that john boehner, the house speaker came out and said that it's off the table that there would be anymore revenue. from the short run he's right. >> it certainly looks that way. but what's intriguing that the administration's response is let's not try to move around the immovable object of speaker baner or the senate minority leader mitch mcconnell who is dead set against that. that's why you set the outreach to paul ryan, the chairman of the budget committee perhaps in hopes of maybe doing an in-run around the leadership. gwen: does what happen in washington matter when it comes to wall street or when it comes to these job numbers? is washington action or inaction driving the markets at all or depressing them? >> oh, absolutely. i would say that the main reason that the stock market has had such a good strong start to the year is because washington didn't tank the economy of doing a variety of silly things like defaulting on the national debt. the absence of a negative is a positive. gwen: it goes wi

control with house republicans in a meeting that john boehner described as a, quote, frank and candid exchange of ideas. but today's meeting with the senate republicans is arguably the most important day of outreach for the president. kelly o'donnell has the latest on that. >> reporter: great to see you. that meeting is still going on. you point out, it is perhaps the most important and it might be the place where the president has the best chance to make up some ground. we know that he will also meet with house democrats and that's more of a family meeting. a much greater in numbers meeting. so with senate republicans, you've got the most intimate group. 40 some members will be there today. and i'm not getting any reports out of the room just yet. one of the differences here on the hill is that we have sort of interior road blocks that we don't have day to day because the president is not only here but moving from one side of the capital to another. what's at stake here? certainly the president has been saying, he is trying to have a more positive relationship, trying to get rid of s

right now because he has a primary to work about. john boehner can't work with him because the house republicans don't like him. if the president can find 15 republicans to work with and craft a deal it can probably be passed in the house and senate and become law, and that's the main goal. gun control, immigration, these meetings will not help, but that one issue i think it will help a lot. >> amy, one of the things -- one of the things that seems to have come out of this meeting if you were to believe peggy noonan's account with the two senators not named in the "wall street journal" piece that she wrote, at one point three of the senators became emotional. like the picture, again, the picture that's painted, at least is that folks are sitting around a table who just kind of rediscovered each other and some were moved to tears. >> the jefferson hotel seems to have quite an impact on politicians that hasn't seen this much action since the world learned that dick morris likes to play podiatrist, but in terms of, you know, the impact and power, the president of the united states still

except if you read the poll. this poll, the poll that john boehner really wants you to see, is actually just like all of the other polls. now it's true. voters would rather cut spending for energy than raise taxes and rather cut unemployment insurance than raise taxes which seems to me to be a shame. in those two categories, voters would rather cut money than raise new revenue. but voters say they would rather raise taxes and cut money from medicaid and prefer cutting taxes to money for roads and bridges and transportation. voters say raise taxes instead of cutting money for medicare one of our most popular programs. by an even wider margin voters say we should raise taxes rather than cut social security. grandma and cat food not a popular idea. by an even wider margin than that, voters say we should raise taxes rather than cut money for schooling. apparently, people like the future. despite john boehner's belief that they are in fashion, this new pole he champions like a lot like the other ones. what do republicans want to do has not gotten more popular. so senate democrats will give t

mean, i had john boehner on my radio show and paul ryan on the show last night. what are your thoughts? what are they doing right and wrong? >> doing something, proposing budgets all well and good. they had a continuing resolution last week, that they could have used to try and cut some of obamacare administrative expenses, put some language in it in order to curtail obamacare. obamacare is the big killer in this society and not just of health care, but of liberty and the constitution, and what do they do? they vote for it. not only do they vote for it, they don't allow conservatives in the house to put an amendment on it. obama's not taking boehner seriously, he's kicking him around like a soccer ball. that's the problem, the republicans have got to show they mean something, if they don't, this is going to continue and as far as obama goes, mr. president, you said you would not raise taxes on the middle class. you increase those payroll taxes. why do you keep lying to the american people? you said you wouldn't raise taxes on the middle class. we've got all kinds of taxes on medical de

but in the republican party, perhaps much more intense. there are scenes where john boehner is trying to work a deal with the president to do tax reform and entitlement reform and the majority leader calls people like paul ryan who is now running for vice president with gum in a romney, calls ryan and some of the other key republicans and they say my gosh, we have got a speaker who is doing deals with the president. the speaker is a runaway horse. how do we get control of him? speaker boehner told me that his staff was so worried that the staff members came to see him in his office on the second floor of the capital and said, you have got to stop trying to do a deal with the president. if you keep doing this you are going to risk your speakership. the president said, and i talked to him interestingly enough, he said he realizes the magnitude of all of this. as does speaker boehner, key democrats in key republicans realize what it is. he literally said to me i would willingly lose an election if i could solve these problems. it is that serious. tim geithner the treasury secretary in the book is quote

connell in the senate or john boehner in the house. so he's now going around to the members directly. and the president feels those members -- you heard jeb bush say the president never talked about entitlement rereform. that's just dead wrong. the president believes these members don't get that message. what the real republican message is yes, he talked about entitlement reform but it's tiny little stuff and it needs to be bigger. and the president figures if he's going to get the swap, the swap from revenue from tax changes in entitlement changes if that deal is going to be made, the president is going to have to kind of make it one by one with republican senators, hope to build something in the senate that then can pass the house if john boehner lets it come up for a vote and lets it pass the house with a minority of republicans which is a key threshold. that's the kind of dream scenario but the white house is very realistic. >> schieffer: just quickly to you, peggy, do you really think there is a chance they can get something done here? >> sure. it's a beautiful day in washington. it's a gorgeous p

topics, let's start with the op ed john boehner wrote in "washington post," where he addresses obama's leadership in trying to reach a budget deal. what do you make of that piece? >> it's interesting, mr. obama, the president went to house republicans yesterday and the best that can be said is there was no food thrown. but after the outreach, which is the word of the week in washington, after the president's outreach, the next morning in "the washington post," we see an op ed from house speaker john boehner saying that the president has to go beyond the same proposals and democratic dogma. that does not sound like conciliatory language to me. >> let's go back to scott prouty. he's the bartender who recorded mitt romney's 47% remarks. he's speaking out now for the first time. how did he bring mitt romney down? how significant was that video to mitt romney's campaign? and do you think it will affect the way that politicians conduct themselves at fund-raisers in the future? >> well, i think that the whole idea that you can count on being taped just about anything you do is going to affe

of the house, john boehner, quote, any job creation is positive news, but the fact is unemployment in america is still way above the levels the obama white house projected when the trillion-dollar stimulus spending bill was enacted, and the federal government's ongoing spendi spending binge has resulted in a debt that exceeds the size. the biggest loss, the ones in red, actually happened when george bush was president. doesn't the president, barack obama, deserve some credit for improving the economy from what he inherited. joy reid and michael crawley. what a name to have after "downton abbey" after all these months. it seems to me that when i look at the stock market breaking all records, when i look at 236,000 new jobs and i keep thinking when are the republicans doing to do what rodney dangerfield asks people to do, show some respect, don't people say, damnit things have got to be getting better? >> no, i agree with you. they were saying the economy is terrible because their candidate mitt romney was running only on one thing, the economy is bad, i can fix it. the next person up for re-el

think john boehner would like to leave office knowing he had cobbled together some big deal where entitlements were reformed and there was a track to reduce the debt? you bet. i think he'd like that deal. he can't do it, though. i think that's why the posture of mcconnell and boehner are so important in this process because they could have shut the door and did for a long time. and the conversations he's having with democrats are new, and the fact they're up there in quasi public, that he's talking to them about look, if we're going to do entitlements, let's do it on our watch when we can do it our way. that is a new part of this conversation. >> this legacy point is important because it connects the two points we were making, which is republicans are so suspicious and they think the president is being this charm offensive so he can at the last moment pull the rug out. gwen: a charlie brown moment. >> right. it's now the 2014 elections. everybody turn out the republicans. that's what worries the republicans. but the greater concern for the president is in bigger deal. they believe

the budget -- >> hold on. come on. let's go back and forth. the republican party right now has john boehner up there and rand paul and paul ryan trying to cut government to the bone and then to their right they have people like you who have a lot of energy but have the wrong ideas. the problem is, we never heard in this presentation what was going to happen to those people who lost their jobs. the people that fill the district that you're running for. you have a campaign left. you have to out there and speak directly to them. those people can not disappeared. it remind me of the republicans' problems of gay americans who want the same rights. if you're not in your family, they don't get those rights. if you don't see these jobs, you don't care about those jobs. your party is talking about white house tours and federal spending. we're not seeing the real spending. the problem is, what we see at cpac and the conservative media. out in the country, people are getting gust rated with that. you have to find a way, my advice to you, find a way to talk to those people, not disappear them from the

of whether the gop can learn lessons, whether 2012 sort of registered. john boehner was on record in "the new york times" saying there were no policy lessons from 2012, there were candidates that sort of failed. i guess that theory of evolution was echoed by paul ryan today. i want to play sound regarding once again the fiscal ideas that he touted in 2012, rearing their heads in 2013. let's take a listen. >> a balanced budget is a reasonable goal because it returns government to its proper limits and focus. when government overreaches, it doesn't just hurt our paychecks, it hurts our quality of life. we need to make room for community, for that vast middle ground between the government and the individual. >> you know, governor, the part of me that sticks out there is use of the word "community." i think that's been a priority that's lost specifically in the ryan budget insofar as it sort of tears asunder the social fabric. what do you think about him couching this in softer terms. >> i hate to say it, he has become an empty suit. this budget is a joke. for example, he says he would get rid of

an balanced budget, however. he got a standing ovation but various news reports show that john boehner ovation was louder. >> obama: it was beautiful. >> michael: speaker boehner said the meeting was productive but. >> republicans want to balance the budget. the presidents doesn't. republicans want to solve our long-term debt problem. the president doesn't. we want to unlock our energy resources to put more americans back to work. the president doesn't. >> michael: the president is entering hostile territory now. joining me now is charlie pierce he comes to us from boston, welcome back into "the war room." >> thank you. >> michael: most people are distracted by the new pope today. will the president or republicans benefit more from this quincecoincidence. >> there was no white smoke coming out of the white house today i'll tell you that. that process has broken down. and the notion that the republicans are interested in balancing the budget is laughable. they are interested in cutting taxes for rich people. they are not interested in balancing the budget. reagan taug

proposed this sequester. how pelosi is giving john boehner all of the credit. >> mark, thank you very much. osama bin laden's son-in-law pleaded not guilty to plotting against americans before, and after the september 11th attacks. he appeared in court in new york today. prosecutors say the senior al qaeda leader is talking and giving up valuable information. >> one of al qaeda's senior leaders appeared to face terrorism charges. he pleaded not guilty to a charge he conspired to kill americans. in this video abugaz celebrates the september 11th attacks on the u.s.. he was brought to new york city last week according to u.s. officials. the cia tracked his movement for years. once getting into turkey with close monitoring by u.s. government agencies he was, his days were numbed. >> he was transfered to jordan. the u.s. picked him up. officials tell abc news he revealed information about the current al qaeda status, pefrs nel and financials. >> this is the man in the inner circuit of the al qaeda operations and now, we have him alive and he's talking. this is one of the first prosecutions of

enthusiasm as possible. john boehner, quote, any job creation is positive new, but the fact is unemployment in america is still way above the levels the obama white house projected when the trillion dollar stimulus bill was enacted and the ongoing intending binge has resulted in a debt that exceeding the side of our economy. take a look at this. blue represents the months president obama has been in office. since march of 2010, the private sector has added jobs every single month and the biggest loss of jobs, the ones in red, actually happened back when george bush was president. so doesn't the president deserve some credit for improving the economy? rita and michael, it seems to me that when i look at the stock market breaking all records, when i look at 236,000 new jobs and i keep thinking when are the republicans going to do what rodney dangerfield asked for, show a little respect, and what does this all mean? don't they secretly say, damn it, things are getting better? >> before the election, the in-sin stiin incentive for republicans was to down play the economy. so once the election w

the republicans pull the ball like lucy, away, at the last second. john boehner is pushing back at conservative members who are calling to restrict money from the president's health care law as part of legislation to fund the government. >> i believe that trying to put obama care on this vehicle, risks shutting down the government. that's not what our goal is. our goal here is to reduce spending. >> current funding to keep the government operating runs out on march 27th. >>> new bills tightening controls on the sale of guns are headed to the full senate. but there's real doubts over whether democrats can muster support to turn the suggestion into law. the bills limiting the high-capacity magazines and background checks have narrowly passed a key committee. and debate boild over when ted cruz challenged die in an feinstein on whether her plan is constitutional. >> it seems to me that all of us should begin as our foundational document with the constitution. and the second amendment in the bill of rights provides that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. and the q

speaker john boehner trying to place the entire burden on democrats. >> listen, i'm glad president obama reached out yesterday and visited with the house republican conference. and i think we had an honest discussion. but this is going to take more dinner dates and phone calls. it's going to take the president and senate democrats rolling up their sleeves and making tough choices about how we solve our nation's problems. >> all right. let's turn to our congressional panel tonight. congressman keith ellison of minnesota, congressman tim ryan of ohio. i'll take the liberty to say three of my best friends in the congress. no doubt. >> that's right. >> gentlemen, good to have you with us tonight. congressman ellison, you first, what's going on here? >> well, we have 107 people in the house caucus, democrats who say that we are going to stand firm on social security, medicare and medicaid benefici beneficiaries. the bottom line is, you know, they're -- anyone who wants to make any changes there is going to have to talk to the rank and file democrats. and a lot of us are very clear on where we

morning. >> yesterday the president got a standing ovation from house republicans. john boehner had some flattering words for the president. in an op-ed this morning john boehner had some not so flattering words for the president. >> that's right. what you are seeing here is a shift. the president, as you pointed out, the first lady says a lot of lawmakers out there thought the president was aloof, that he hasn't spent the kind of time needed to develop relationships with republicans over the years. instead, has waged this campaign-style strategy where he hits the road in order to put pressure on lawmakers to bend to some of his proposals. we have seen now the shift in recent weeks where the president is sitting down, having face to face meetings with republicans. having dinner or lunch and having this on going dialogue. so republicans are looking at this and saying they are cautiously optimistic that this is all headed in a new direction. we heard the president from the president last night talk about this shift about the outreach and he was talking to supporters and donors as part of t

republican said the white house never agreed in negotiations with john boehner to change the inflation index, which determines how fast government programs grow. in fact, on the white house website, it says they have a need to do that. i think the most generous interpretation is that obama has a better case to make about how much he's willing to compromise than some republicans realize. >> margaret, as a republican, how do you see it? is progress being made? >> the president going to the hill is progress. the president sitting down with paul ryan at the white house for the first time ever is progress. some republicans think it's really genuine. i guess there have been follow up made by the white house chief of staff following up on the president's calls and initial conversation. all of this is good. you have to keep in mind how poisoned the well has been. the president's strategy has been demonizing house republicans. that's a strategy. you can see why republicans are cautious about this. i think that may be a stretch too far. the other thing that is important to remember, tone comes from th
